Da Capo Best Music Writing 2003
"Best Band in the Land" from Exiled on Main Street #27
is included in the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2003
Da Capo Press describes the book as: "The fourth and
latest volume in the acclaimed series that you've come to
rely on for your music-writing fix. This year's selection was
handpicked by Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons
and himself a recovering rock critic. Culled from over a
hundred sources, Da Capo Best Music Writing 2003
features remarkable essays by critics, musicians,
novelists, and journalists who are as serious about writing
as they are about music. It's required reading for anyone
who loves either art."
Past contributors have included Lester Bangs, Nick Cohn,

Dave Marsh, The Onion, Metal Mike Saunders, Kate Sullivan,
